JoyMasher is again at it with Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider

Dispensing extra retro motion

JoyMasher isn’t slowing down on retro motion video games. Its newest launch, Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider, is looking out to the Strider (and Hagane?) followers within the room. And with a fall launch deliberate, it’s reassuring to know that this new throwback isn’t far off.

After the Contra-flavored Blazing Chrome, they’ve bought my full consideration.

This one’s one other level-based side-scrolling motion recreation, starring a newly-awakened ninja who’s rebelling in opposition to a futuristic totalitarian state. Slice ’em good.

“I dug deep into the territory of 16-bit video games and even some early CD video games, and tried to craft an genuine expertise, simply as for those who simply present in your basement an unreleased MegaDrive/Genesis recreation,” artwork director Danilo Dias stated on the PlayStation Weblog.

Sure, that’s a nod to H.R. Giger

“All of the character designs in Vengeful Guardian Moonrider, and normal artwork route of the sport, have been closely impressed by Japanese artist Keita Amemiya, the designer behind numerous video video games, anime, and tokusatsu from that period. I additionally took a variety of inspiration from H.R. Giger, the artist behind the otherworldly visuals of the Alien sequence.”

The vibes are proper.

If this seems to be like a distilled arcade-style expertise with out the modern-day fluff, that’s the thought — however there’s “a bit of little bit of merchandise looking and exploration,” too.

Throughout the sport’s eight levels, you’ll be capable to discover hidden chips that stretch the vengeful guardian’s talents. Dias cited a double-jump, longer-range weaponry, and well being regeneration amongst “numerous different” unlocks to unearth. I’m anticipating it to push again.

With video games like Oniken, Odallus, and Blazing Chrome, this staff is on a roll.

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider is focusing on a fall 2022 launch on PC (by Steam), PlayStation 4, PS5, Nintendo Change, and even the cloud-based Amazon Luna platform. I really feel dangerous for JoyMasher’s Xbox followers who’re feeling ignored. By no means say by no means.
